Your Wings Are Ready

Hello Friends

I have a lovely butterfly card for you today inspired by article of clothing. My husband bought me lovely butterfly jammies (pyjamas) for Christmas. I LOVE them so much. They are the kind that when you put them on they are just super comfy and you want to live in them ha! Anyway I loved the pattern on them too. A collaboration of different butterflies coloured in pink with a touch of grey. I thought this would make a great card.

I got out some of my favourite Unity butterfly stamps to create a similar pattern.  I used my distress inks to paint the butterflies and background. 

I really love the combination of the colours once it was dry I stamped the word butterflies all over it with silver ink. I backed it on to some glitter paper and then a grey card base. I added some glitter to each butterfly. Finally I printed out a sentiment that I love to add to my card.

~ Your time as a caterpillar has expired. Your wings are ready. ~ 

It is time my friends to shake off the old and fly into the new. Whatever that may be for you in 2015, have the courage to use your wings. Be brave and FLY!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today.

Craft Stamper May Challenge

Hello Friends! I hope everyone is doing ok during this crazy time.  I just wanted to remind you that we are still running the Craft Stamper Challenges.  The May challenge is well underway but you still have time to come and join in.  Here is my card I made for this month's project.  I made this clean and simple floral card with Unity stamps.  I used two different kits to create this card. The jar with the flowers is from the  Strength & Wisdom  stamp set and the sentiment is from the kit called  His Words .  I kept my card really clean and just used my watercolors to colour the flowers and jar then tied a little twine around it to finish it off. If you have the time come and play along with us this month.  You can use any stamps you wish on your project.  Here is the prize we have on offer this month this fab Eileen Hull die.  All of the details of the challenge can be found on the  Craft Stamper Blog . Hope to see your project

Unity & Misti Blog Hop

Hello My lovelies :) Welcome to the Unity and Misti blog hop! I  hope you are enjoying seeing all of the projects so far. I just had my first wee play with the Misti tool the other day. It is a very new to me tool and wow do I LOVE it!! It is awesome! Just for the simplest of things like positioning a stamp.  One time is all you need with the Misti!! I am not one of those crafters that gets my stamped images crisp first time. I usually have wasted a card or two before I end up with a perfect image. This tool totally eliminates all of that.  Here is my very first card that I made with the Misti tool and Unity stamps.  I used a stamp called  Scattered Pieces . I LOVE this stamp and the sentiments that come with it.  I positioned the feather and the sentiment at the same time on the Misti.  I totally love that you can do that too!  It lets you stamp several at once instead of just eye balling it and hoping it works out!
